Every year GTES and our staff support the community in many different ways. Here are just a few examples.
High School Awards
Recognising that today’s high school students are tomorrow’s apprentices and trainees, GTES is always searching for new ways to promote the benefits of an apprenticeship or traineeship pathway as a career option at the completion of their school life. With that in mind, GTES now attends over 30 high school’s graduation events and presents the GTES Award, which includes a certificate and a cheque, to a student in Years 10, 11 or 12. Recipients are those students who have performed exceptionally well in a VET related subject.
Each year the GTES Board elect to support a local charity. For the past number of years this has been Micah House in Wagga Wagga. Our donation assists Micah House in providing a Christmas luncheon to many disadvantaged local people.
